Top 10 films of our lifetime #10: The Cabin In The Woods
In case you missed the sensational social media event of last Friday, TheShiznit.co.uk turned 10 years old. We launched on September 12th, 2004, and we've been getting worse ever since. However, the movies we've seen along the way have been amazing, so we decided to mark the occasion by ranking our 10 favourite films released since we went online. The debate was fierce. Arguments raged. Tempers frayed. Plates were thrown. Then I decided to see if the other guys wanted to chip in. You can read the results over the next 10 weekdays, culminating with our #1 favourite movie of TheShiznit.co.uk's lifetime on Friday 26th September. Until then...

There’s not a lot I can say about The Cabin In The Woods because practically the whole film is one big spoiler. What I can say is that we have five copies on DVD to give away. But obviously only enter this competition if you have already seen it because otherwise you’ll end up watching it and ruining the ending for yourself.

Thanks, America: this is why we can't have nice things

Interview: Drew Goddard, co-writer & director of The Cabin In The Woods
Having seen a top secret screening of The Cabin In The Woods a while back, I've been going out of my mind wanting to talk about it with people, but it's really one of those films where it's better you know as little as possible. Being offered the chance to talk to Drew Goddard - Cabin's co-writer and director - was the perfect opportunity for me to enthuse about the film and gain a further insight into how a movie as awesome as The Cabin In The Woods came to exist. Don't worry, it's spoiler free!

The Cabin In The Woods
I'm about to write a thousand words on why The Cabin In The Woods is the best movie of the year so far, yet I can't actually tell you anything substantial about it without ruining it. In true Psycho style, to share the film's secret is to rob it of its power. Just take it from me that you're better off knowing as little as possible about The Cabin In The Woods, and even if you think you know what it is, you probably don't. What you see in the trailers is approximately 25% of the film – the tip of the iceberg. The brilliance of The Cabin In The Woods is in exactly what's lurking beneath the surface.
